[applause] smart people who study this kind of thing tallis that anger -- tell us that anger is usually a mask for fear. why do the citizens of the greatest nation on earth have reason to be fearful? it is because we love our country. we love the first principles of liberty and opportunity. we love the american dream. we want it for ourselves and for our children. this is the promised land. this is the place that people have always come to buy land, by sea, by hook or by crook. when people living under tyrants are secretly planning their escape, this land is the preferred destination.

disciplines. and each operates uniquely with basically only two other institutions in america. and almost none around the world. the two in america being the national institutes of health, and national science foundation. where we allocate federal funds based on peer review. and so we bring the best and the brightest in america in various fields to assess projects or grants or scholarship. of one kind or another. and so when you ask about goals, one is to preserve the institution as it's come in to being. and has developed a rather wonderful track record. but beyond that, they are challenges of the time. and so i've laid forth two that i consider to be initiatives that aren't exactly goals but there's a hard, kind of thin line between a goal and an initiative. one i called bridging cultures where we're looking at putting a greater emphasis on what it is that makes a people a people. and then what it is that makes people differentiated. and we're a society that has a wondrous national culture. but we are also a mosaic of subcultures. so understanding ourselves is very important. and then we're
countries at our expense and that hurts the cause of america. >> so it's un-american? >> it hurts america. that's the point. >> why do you use language -- at least have a house committee on un-american activities that went out after the communists in early 50s 1z, late '40s. using the term un-american, i wonder about her language here. do you think it's that fundamental she's un-american and you folks from oklahoma and the oil states are pro american because you're pro oil? >> i think what you're doing here, chris, is quibble over your choice of words. >> her choice. >> i understand. >> her choice. >> the point is, people could quibble about your choice of words and, you know, spend all the time about your word selection rather than upon the issues you're talking about. the tea party is issue oriented. >> let me ask you about the applause lines at tea parties. they're inevitably about freedom, about the notion of being real americans, about american exceptionalism. these fundamental arguments with barack obama. they're not about the nuances of tax policy or trade policy or energy policy.
, versus focusing what is wrong with america. as long as that is the attitude that you cannot do anything to uplift this country without feeling like you are handing out, giving handouts to someone, and you are against obama no matter what, because you feel for someone -- is going to benefit from it. host: thanks for the call. i am going back to another opinion piece. dan ball says the tea partiers movement is a reaction against obama and the democrats' agenda. sarah palin may be trying to become the movement's most prominent voice, but the real motivating force is the president and his policies. we are asking whether you think the tea partiers will have an impact on the upcoming elections. we read about charlie crist and the impact on the florida senate race. a democrat from brooklyn, new york. good morning. caller: good morning. it has become a habit to wake up and hear the conversation focused on the tea partiers movement. either you have nothing else to talk about -- i don't know if fox cable networks as influence in your studio. host: let me stop you. this program is a reflection of

strengths such as the military or freedom of speech, what is a great strength that america has. people do not really think about the free market economy and think of it as a great thing about america. it is one of the great things about america. we decided to make that our topic. we were able to find a lot of our local small businesses that we were able to intervene. it worked out pretty much perfect from there. >> what did you learn from your interviews? >> and learned a lot about what it takes to start business. when we interviewed the business owners, we did not focus on the forms you have to fill out, but what you as a person has to go through to the a business owner. anybody can start a business if you have the appropriate determination and drive. what one person told us was most true. not everyone can start a business. it takes an incredible amount of determination, motivation. not everybody has that. >> you also mentioned the american dream. describe that. >> since america was founded, people from other countries have been traveling here to seek a better life. the american dream is
on a playground. >> no administration in america's history would ever have considered such a step we just found out president obama is supporting today. you know, that's kind of like getting out there on the playground, a bunch of kids ready to fight and one of the kids saying, go ahead, punch me in the face and i'm not going to retaliate. no. it's unacceptable. this is another thing that the american public, the more that they find out what is a part of it agenda, they're going to rise up and they're going to say no more. national defense, national security is the number one job of the federal government. >> that woman is an idiot. earlier on abc's "world news tonight," the president asked by george stephanopoulos to respond to sarah palin. >> i really have no response to that. last i checked, sarah palin's not much of an expert on nuclear issues. >> all right. he put it better than i did. let's turn to richard bert, former ambassador to germy, the u.s.'s first negative negotiate yater for the first s.t.a.r.t. treaty signed by president bush in 1991. he is not u.s. chairman of global zero, an
play is serving only to muddy the waters furnished in an effort to keep america safe. which is what we are all supposed to be about. i personally thought that the bush phrase global war on terror was way too veiling. early -- too vague. team obama made it less precise to overseas contingencies operations. i love that now they have changed the name again this time to countering violent extremism. or cve. when a nigerian tried to blow up a plane over detroit last december it was appropriate to call him violent extremist. fort hood homegrown violent extremist. how about that chech neon suicide bomber. what is the one common denominator with all these cases? are we even allowed to ask that question? and then the most important question of all, does retiring the phrase islamic radicalism actually help keep america safer? look, president obama is right about one thing, this is not a war that's going to be won by military might alone. we will need to use every tool at our disposal. president obama should do more to call on all peace-loving muslims to rise up against the ruthless radicals to i

states. she didn't have to face the consequences of her reckless conduct while living in america. in 1996, evelyn was driving drunk in texas and fell asleep at the wheel and had a head-on collision. she had minor injuries, but in the collision, she killed her 18-year-old roommate and permanently paralyzed a third passenger. evelyn was indicted for intoxication manslaughter in texas and she was charged with a felony of drinking, driving and killing somebody. after posting bail, she and her parents snuck out of town and they headed backs to their home country of peru. mezick continues to live a lifestyle in peru without remorse or without reform. a few years ago, she put up a myspace page on the internet and posted pictures of herself drinking and partying with friends. she had a wild party, also drinking and partying with her girlfriends, complete with a male stripper and listed her favorite song. here is a photograph that she placed on the internet with some of her friends and she is the one with the drink, partying, having a good time, all the while escaping justice in texas for the crim
diversity in america. "washington journal" is next. . . our question for you this morning is about financial regulatory reform. do you think it will get bipartisan support? the lines are -- you can also e-mail up -- e-mail us at or twitter. senators will face a future -- crucial test vote on far reaching legislation to overhaul the nation's regulatory system. republicans said sunday they plan to block efforts to move forward unless democrats altered several elements. meanwhile, democrats and obama officials spent much of the day finalizing strict new rules to rein in the huge derivatives trade -- other coverage of that in "the washington times." republican leaders said yesterday their ranks are unified and determined to shoot down a key test vote today, potentially embarrassing scenario for democrats seeking to advance a major item of president obama's agenda. our question to you is, do you think bipartisan support will materialize today on the financial regulatory bill. and it's not today, because of differences between the parties -- do you think it will be different, pe

states. today, the heritage foundation the conservative think tank here said america is no longer a free nation. it's a mostly free nation. they rank countries every year and they dropped america. so now we're living in a not so free united states according to the heritage foundation. people are picking up on this and their paranoia is really kicking in. there was a lot of anticipation about what the health care bill would do. no one is waiting to see that. they're already acting as if it was the worst-case scenario. first, we had obama, the foreigner, the guy wasn't born here, coming in and taking over the government. creating a regime as rush limbaugh calls it. now he's imposing socialism. anybody who lives in a socialist country, whether europe or any place else would be laughing at this as a notion of socialism. there is a -- this -- this has become the battle front for people who are worried about the very nature of this country. i think a lot of the worry isseisser is irrational. >> steve? >> one thing i think we've got to keep in mind, this didn't start with health care. remember
that any america first. to my independent brother from florida, right on, man. we need to get rid of these two parties. they need to be put out of office. we need to bring into a third party, and not fall for this tea party garbage, either. these two big parties do it every time they are not in office. we tried to be the independent, liberals, conservatives buddies. they're not our friends. they are our enemies that keep oppressing us. host: that will be the last voice this morning. in the stern, who for many years has been the president of the -- he has announced he will leave that position. on a personal side, he is turning 60. the personal aspect is much involved in his decision to leave. that is it for our thursday morning. we go to the house of representatives for today's live coverage. gues. the speaker pro tempore: the prayer will be offered by the guest chaplain, reverend clyde miles, lighthouse reform church, howard, pennsylvania. the chaplain: o lord, who call this nation into being, to the lives and sacrifice of those whose hearts are state upon you. they conduct the wo
